"earching retail sites can be frustrating at times. While many retailers try to present product search in a visually appealing way, search can often be slow or difficult to refine. Tonight, Google is making a huge play in retail space with the launch of Commerce Search, a hosted enterprise search product to power online retail stores and e-commerce websites.

Google offers a general hosted search product that is used by organizations that want to add customized Google search functionality to their websites. Google is now entering the vertical space, by the first tailor-made enterprise product, with retail optimized space"

Hmm, the Contact Sales button takes me to a general, verbose support alternatives page?

Does anyone see where Google is getting at? It's another building block to let anyone create their own shop.

Google Shop = Commerce Search + Checkout + Analytics + ???

??? = something like site creator but for shops.

I've read that the minimum costs per installation are 50.000 dollar?

I spotted a few issues with the relevance and the filtering – eg try searching for bag on the Google store and the top result is a bean bag. I've got details with screen shots on our blog: sli-systems.com/blog/2009/11/g ...

Let me know if you agree.

Very confusing.
Is there no limit to the yearly price?
How does the user control the costs?
